SU M M ARY OF I NFORMATI ON FO R BUY ERS

RE GIS T E RIN G TO BID New clients must register online to bid (whether in person or in absentia). This can be done via our website www.noonans.co.uk Registrations will be subject to due diligence and Noonans reserves the right to cancel registrations. Once registered, any client bidding for the first time online will need to enter their card details so that a security check can be performed to authorise you to bid (www.noonans.co.uk >Your Account > Account Authorisation). This check is secure, your card details are not seen by us and no funds will be deducted. BIDDING P RIORITY Please note that we prioritise executing commission bids as early as possible in order to secure the lot for you at the cheapest possible price. It is therefore entirely possible that a lot can sell at your top bid to another bidder. To avoid this happening we offer an optional ‘Plus 1’ bidding increment facility, whereby if the bidding is against you at your maximum bid the auctioneer will execute one further bid on your behalf. Please note that in the event of identical top bids priority is given to the first bid received. P L ACIN G B IDS LIVE BIDDING VIA WWW.NOONANS.CO.UK You may bid in real time from your computer or mobile device. We provide an optional live video and audio feed of the auctioneer, allowing you to participate in much the same way as attending the auction. You may see your invoice and pay online directly after you’ve finished bidding. There is no additional charge for this facility. ADVANCE BIDDING VIA WWW.NOONANS.CO.UK We strongly advise this method if you wish to leave bids in advance as it is the easiest, most accurate and flexible way to leave your bids and gives you total control over them right up to the point that the lot is offered for sale. Bids made online cannot be seen by others and only become live at the point the lot is being sold. Up until this time your bids can be easily altered or cancelled. An automated email is sent to confirm any changes made. There is no additional charge for online bidding. ADVANCE BIDDING VIA POST, EMAIL OR TELEPHONE Whilst we are still happy to execute all bids submitted to us using post, email or telephone, it should be noted that all bids left with us in these ways will be entered at our offices using exactly the same bidding facility to which all our clients have access. There is, therefore, no better way of ensuring the accuracy of your advance bids than to place them yourself online. If you are registered with Noonans you may bid by email to bids@noonans.co.uk or by telephone to 020 7016 1700.

All bids placed by email or telephone must be received before 4 PM on the day preceding the sale. A bidding form is included in the back of this catalogue. If you wish to use this please fill it in carefully, to include all relevant information. Please ensure that you post this form so that it arrives, at the latest, the day before the sale. BIDDING IN THE AUCTION ROOM You are very welcome to attend the auction and bid in person if you are registered with Noonans. Please note that the auction room is situated on the third floor of a Georgian building which doesn’t have a lift. You may pay for and collect your lots during the auction. SAL E RO O M N OTI CE S Should the description of a lot need to be amended after the publication of this catalogue, the amendments will appear automatically on the Noonans website, www.noonans.co.uk. All such amendments are also incorporated in the List of Saleroom Notices pertaining to this auction which are posted separately on the website. The auctioneer will refer to any notices at the time any affected lot is offered for sale. C ATA LO G UE I L LUSTR ATI O N S & THE I N T E RNE T Prospective bidders are reminded that the Noonans website features high-resolution colour illustrations of every lot in this auction. There may also be additional illustrations of any lot. B UYE R S’ PR E M I UM The rate for this sale is 24% of the Hammer Price (+ VAT where applicable). I M PO RTATI O N VAT Lots marked ‘X’ are subject to importation VAT of 5% on the Hammer Price unless re-exported outside the UK, as per Noonans Terms & Conditions of Business. From 1 January 2021 importation VAT may be levied by EU countries on lots sold by Noonans and subsequently imported into those countries. Although Noonans is unable to advise buyers on customs regulations in their country of domicile, there is further information regarding EU importation VAT rates for collectable items in the Terms and Conditions published on the Noonans website. ARTI STS R E SAL E R I G HTS ( D RO I T D E SU I T E ) Droit de Suite is a royalty payable to a qualifying artist or their estate every time the artist’s work is sold at auction or by an art market professional during the artist’s lifetime and for a period of up to 70 years following the artist’s death. Royalties are calculated on a sliding percentage scale based on the hammer price. Lots subject to this royalty payment are marked with ARR in the catalogue.

PAYM E N T

It is common practice for many gemstones to be subject to various treatments to improve their appearance. Sapphires and rubies are routinely heat treated to improve their colour and clarity, emeralds may be treated with oils or resin, other gemstones may be subject to treatments such as staining, irradiation or coating. Jade may be bleached, polymer/resin filled or dyed, or a combination of treatments used. Bidders should be aware that, unless stated to the contrary in the catalogue description, it should be assumed that the gemstones may be treated. Where reports are provided from gem laboratories, the opinions as to gradings and treatments of stones may differ slightly between laboratories and Noonans cannot be held responsible for any discrepancies.

You may access your invoice shortly after the hammer has fallen on your last lot. As we weigh lots at the time of cataloguing most shipping is already calculated, enabling you to settle your account and receive your lots in a timely fashion. Auction attendees may pay and collect during the course of the auction as soon as they have bid on their last lot.

U NMOUN TED GEMS TON E S Please note that VAT at 20% is payable on the Hammer price for unmounted diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds. Relevant lots are marked with an asterisk *. See www.gov.uk/guidance/the-margin-andglobal-accounting-scheme-vat-notice E XPO RT OF ORGANIC MATERIAL S Organic materials, such as coral and tortoiseshell may be covered by CITES legislation and this may or may not impact export to other countries. Please be aware that it is the buyer’s responsibility to arrange for any CITES export licences for their purchases. Please see www.cites.org. In addition to CITES, mother-of-pearl, coral, and tortoiseshell, if imported into the USA, will be subject to USA Fish and Wildlife regulations. WATCH E S All watches are sold as viewed. Please note that watches with water-resistant cases have been opened to identify the movement and so will no longer be water-resistant unless a service to reseal the watch is undertaken at the buyer’s expense. Watches may have been repaired during the course of their lifetime and Noonans do not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts. In some circumstances we are unable to ship the watch with its strap due to certain import restrictions regarding material derived from endangered or protected species. P RICE S RE AL IS E D The hammer prices of lots sold at Noonans auctions are posted at www.noonans.co.uk in real time and telephone enquiries are welcome from 9 AM on the day after the auction.

She had a temple inside the Forum, in which a sacred fire burned which was never allowed to go out - if it did, the safety and security of Rome itself was thought to be compromised. The fire was attended by a college of priestesses called the Vestals or Vestal Virgins. The college comprised between 2 and 7 Vestal Virgins at any one time - daughters of aristocrats who were unbound from their families and the usual social obligations placed on women (to marry and bear children).

It was Roy Halston who introduced Peretti to Tiffany and in 1974 she debuted her first collection for them. The jewels sold out instantly and the following year she created the ‘Mesh’ collection, having sought out the old machines used to manufacture the precious metal mesh for purses and evening bags at the turn of the century.

It opened large areas of land to agricultural developed by Europeans and Americans. Under the Homestead Act, thousands of settlers migrated into Nebraska to claim free land granted by the federal government. The first wave of settlement gave the territory a sufficient population to apply for statehood and Nebraska became the 37th U.S. state on 1 March 1867. By the 1880s, Nebraska’s population had soared to more than 450,000 people. The Norfolk Weekly News Journal of Nebraska, 23 March 1906, makes reference to Fred Sonnenschein being nominated again as Mayor for West Point, Nebraska.

HANS GEORG MAUTNER Hans Georg Mautner (1901–circa 1972) was born in Weigelsdorft, Austria, and did an apprenticeship in Prague in 1919, then started work in 1921 for wholesale silversmiths and jewellers Berthold Muller at Hanau. He went on to establish a workshop and retail shop in Vienna in 1925, exhibiting regularly at the Künstlerhaus in Vienna. In 1933 he won a silver medal at the Triennale de Milano and a gold medal at the Paris Exhibition in 1937. According to his biography which accompanied the catalogue for the 1961 International Exhibition of Modern Jewellery 1890–1961, he came to work in London in 1938 where he had a workshop in Hatton Garden. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, Mautner produced jewels for S. J. Rood in Burlington Arcade and Boucheron in Old Bond Street, both in London. He also made jewellery for the Crown Jeweller Garrard & Co. Ltd from 1952, the year in which they merged with The Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co. Ltd, and moved premises to 112 Regent Street, London. Mautner worked with both 9 and 18ct gold, and used semi-precious stones. He produced ‘wacky animal brooches in whimsical poses, often using rubies or emeralds as eyes’, (Wingfield) - these brooches often being small in size.

107

A MEDIEVAL GOLD DIAMOND SET AND INSCRIBED LOVE RING, LATE 14TH CENTURY The shank taking the form of two angular entwined bands, the square rising pyramidal bezel close set with a pyramidal diamond crystal, the interior bearing a lower case black letter inscription in Medieval French reading: ‘ieo vos * tien * foi * tenes * le moy’ translating ‘As I hold your faith, hold mine’, ring size L½. £30,000–£40,000 Provenance: This ring was a detectorist find, discovered in Thorncombe parish, Dorset. The ring is recorded on the Portable Antiquities Scheme database Ref: DEV-D1B964 and has subsequently been disclaimed as Treasure, Ref: 2019-T179.

The location of the find in Dorset was acquired by Henry de Broc (or de la Brook) from Reginald de Mohun (1206–1258), Feudal baron of Dunster in Somerset who had inherited it from his first wife Hawise Fleming, daughter and heiress of William Fleming. It then passed by descent through the Brook family. By the late 14th century, the Manor was in the possession of Sir Thomas Brook (c.1355–1418), who also owned La Brooke in the parish of Ilchester, who was the largest landowner in Somerset, and served 13 times as a Member of Parliament for Somerset (between 1386 and 1413). Sir Thomas was the first prominent member of his family, largely due to the great wealth he acquired from his marriage in 1388 to the wealthy widow Joan Hanham (d. 1437). Joan was the second daughter and co-heiress of Simon Hanham of Gloucestershire, and the widow of the Bristol cloth merchant Robert Cheddar (d. 1384), MP and twice Mayor of Bristol, whose wealth comprised 17 manors, five advowsons and very extensive properties throughout Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Gloucestershire, together with 21 shops, four cellars and 160 tenements in Bristol. Her son Richard Cheddar, MP, signed over his large inheritance to his mother and stepfather, Sir Thomas Brook, for the duration of their lives, due to the latter having ‘many times endured great travail and cost’ in defending them during his minority.

The Brooks were granted a licence to crenelate the Manor in 1396 and create a park of 200 acres of pasture and wood. They resided there until they acquired the manor of Weycroft in the parish of Axminster, Devon, in around 1395, thereafter they split their time between the two residences. In May 1415, an ailing Sir Thomas Brook signed his will at the Manor, although he did not die until January 1418. His wife died 19 years later in 1437, and the couple were buried together in Thorncombe, the local parish church, under an elaborate ledger stone and monumental brass, considered to be one of the finest of its kind in the country. Unusually, although Sir Thomas was a knight, both he and his wife are depicted wearing fine civilian clothes and the Lancastrian Collar of Ss. The current Church of St Mary the Virgin at Thorncombe was built in 1887, about 50 yards south of the site of the former church (built at the same time as nearby Forde Abbey, in the late 12th / early 13th centuries by Cistercian monks) but the Brook effigies were preserved and inserted in another ledger-stone and placed in a relative position therein on a low tomb.

The monumental brasses for Sir Thomas and Lady Joan Brook at St Mary the Virgin, Thorncombe

Although the knightly chivalric code dates to the 12th century, the notion of chivalric and courtly love really hit its peak in the 14th and 15th centuries. Courtly love is an ideal - the devotion of a great aristocratic knight to the most beautiful, courtly lady, ‘that love is not only virtuous in itself but is the very source and cause of all the other virtues’. This period also saw the flowering of ‘Court Culture’, which brought a new elegance to court life, a new delight in elaborate ceremonialism, and a new and high degree of stylisation to the manners of the French speaking aristocracy in England. This focus on courtly love can be seen in the literature of the time, such as Chaucer and Mallory. It can also be seen reflected in jewels, the ring offered here for sale being a fine example, with the two entwined bands representing the entwined lives of the couple (giver and receiver) and the personal love-themed posy inscription within, written in French (the language of both love and the aristocracy). In her cataloguing of a similar mid 14th century marriage/betrothal ring with an entwined band, Sandra Hindman also compares the pierced decoration of the band to developments in Gothic architecture, such as Sainte Chapelle in Paris.

The ring is recorded on the Portable Antiquities Scheme database, Ref: DEV-A918D2, and has subsequently been disclaimed as Treasure.

The inscription ‘Beauty of death’ may allude to death as peace or freedom, with dying perceived as a pure form of beauty. A series of Hebrew poems, written by Medieval French Jews living in Northern France in the 12th and 13th century, record the persecution suffered by the Jews and the intense pressure to convert to Christianity. Many Jews chose suicide over death at the hands of their Christian persecutors, their defiant deaths adding to the concept of ‘Beautiful Death’, and the narrative of the Medieval Jewish martyr was born. The tragedy of the Martyrs of Blois, the murder of 32 Jewish men and women burnt at the stake in the French town of Blois on the River Loire, in 1171, was recorded in eight of the surviving Hebrew poems.

A LATE MEDIEVAL GOLD ICONOGRAPHIC RING, CIRCA 1400-1500 Depicting St. Christopher and the Christ Child, the plain D-shaped hoop with flat oval bezel incised with the figure of St Christopher wading left through water, holding a staff in his right hand and carrying the child Jesus on his back, Jesus holding an orb and raising his right hand in blessing, the surround chiselled to receive enamel decoration, (traces only remain), internal diameter 16mm. £3,000–£4,000 Provenance: This ring was a detectorist find, discovered near Marlborough, Wiltshire. The ring has been recorded on the Portable Antiquities Scheme database Ref. HAMP-88F882 and has subsequently been disclaimed as Treasure, Ref. 2019 T642.

St. Christopher was a man of great stature and height, who devoted his life to carrying travellers across a river. One day he carried a child who became heavier with every step. When questioned, the child revealed himself as Christ, bearing the weight of the world. This image is now believed to protect travellers, with St. Christopher revered as the Patron Saint of Travellers. St. Christopher’s story was recounted in the 13th century text, The Golden Legend.

ANDREW GRIMA Andrew Grima (1931–2007) was born in Rome to Italian-Maltese parents. Raised in London, he studied mechanical engineering at the University of Nottingham. He joined the Royal Engineers, serving in Burma during World War II. After the war he started working in his father-in-law’s jewellery firm in London. In 1951 after his father-in-law died, Grima took over the business and sold it to a stone dealer in Knightsbridge, on the condition that he stayed on as a designer. Entirely self taught, his limitless imagination led him to create bold and striking designs - each piece being hand wrought, and typically only creating one of each design. In 1960 Grima’s talent was spotted by the Art Director at Goldsmiths’ Hall, Graham Hughes, who introduced his protégé to many of the rich and famous people who were to become his clients. In 1966 his success was sealed when Prince Philip chose one of his pieces, a stunning ruby brooch, as a present for the Queen, 1966 also being the year that Grima received his Royal Warrant. In the late 1960s he opened his exclusive gallery in Jermyn Street, Mayfair - the debut event being hosted by Lord Snowdon, then married to Princess Margaret, and Grima’s reputation continued to grow, attracting a clientele of royalty and society jet-setters of the day. The winner of numerous awards for his contribution to the jewellery industry, including the Duke of Edinburgh Prize for Elegant Design in 1966, and the De Beers Diamonds International Award - awarded 13 times (more than any other jeweller), today Grima is recognised as being one of the great modernist jewellery designers of the 20th century.

FOR M E R LY T H E PROPERT Y OF HER ROYAL HI GHNE SS T HE P R I N CESS M ARGA RET, C OUNTE SS OF SNOWDON

Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret Rose born 21 August 1930, was the younger daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York and sister to Princess Elizabeth, the late Queen Elizabeth II. Born at Glamis, the ancestral home of the Duchess of York, the Princess was the first royal baby to be born in Scotland since the 1600s. The family lived in London Piccadilly until 1936, when the abdication of King Edward VIII and the ascension of the Duke of York to King George VI, moved the family to Buckingham Palace and the residences of Windsor Castle, Sandringham House and Balmoral Castle. Now second in line to the throne, Princess Margaret was to live her life in the public eye, becoming one of the world’s most celebrated socialites, iconised for her striking beauty, style and taste. From an early age the Princess fully engaged with the Royal Family’s public work, becoming patron or president of over eighty organisations, with a particular interest in the fields of welfare and the arts. On 6 May 1960 the Princess married the photographer Anthony Armstrong-Jones at Westminster Abbey. The following year he was created Earl of Snowdon and Viscount Linley. The couple, went on to have two children; Lord Linley, and Lady Sarah Chatto. The marriage of Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon was dissolved in May 1978. The Princess’ later years were plagued by ill health yet despite her struggles the Princess continued to work and support many of her organisations. Princess Margaret at a Charity Ball, 19th August 1955. Copyright Central Press/Getty Images.

Princess Margaret died on 9 February 2002. Her funeral was held on the 50th anniversary of her father’s own funeral and her ashes placed in the Royal Vault in St George’s Chapel before being transferred to the tomb of her parents upon the death of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.

Official portrait of Princess Margaret, 1978, by photographer Norman Parkinson wearing the tassel ear pendants from Lot 259.

Princess Margaret was photographed on numerous occasions wearing individual pieces from this early Victorian gold suite as well as wearing the whole set together. One photograph with Mick Jagger taken after a Rolling Stones concert shows the Princess wearing the brooch to the centre of her dress. Unlike her sister, the late Queen Elizabeth II, who favoured wearing brooches on the traditional left, Princess Margaret followed her grandmother’s style and regularly wore them to the centre front of her neckline. In all photographs depicting the Princess wearing this suite, such as in the series of Snowdon family portraits from 1974, Princess Margaret wears the brooch to the centre of her outfit. In a slightly later and better known portrait taken by the photographer Norman Parkinson in 1978, Princess Margaret wears the tassel earrings from this suite together with the diamond and blue enamel bracelet she had received for her 21st birthday.

BUCCELLATI The Italian firm Buccellati is famous for its rich textural gold jewellery spanning the decades from the 1920s to the 1960s. Their finest pieces are bold and immediately recognisable. Born in to a family of goldsmiths in 1892, Mario Bucellati was apprenticed to the jewellers and goldsmiths Beltrami & Bernati. In 1919 he opened his own jewellery store and workshop on the Largo Santa Maria, near the Teatro alla Scalla, in Milan. In 1951 Mario and his son Luca opened their first store in New York, with another following, on 5th Avenue, in 1954. Mario Buccellati was the first to introduce the technique of texture-engraving, often using mixed metals of silver and gold, or platinum and gold. The different engraving techniques are called rigato (parallel lines cut onto the surface of metal to obtain a sheen effect), telato (texture, obtained by fine cross-hatched lines), segrinato (engraving in every directions with overlapping textures), ornato (decoration based on natural forms such as animals, leaves and flowers), and modellato (the most delicate engraving technique which consists of reproducing several designs chiselled in three dimensions). When the process is complete, the finish will often resemble a fine fabric - linen, lace or silk. In 1971 Gianmaria Buccellati, grandson of Mario, set up his own eponymous jewellery firm, going on to open stores around the world, including the Place Vendome in Paris. He also set the Italian Gemological Institute, IGI, in 1973, remaining as it’s president for the next quarter century. In 2011, the two firms of Mario Buccellati and Gianmaria Buccellati merged to form the single firm of Buccellati.

Please note the four cs of a diamond cannot be fully assessed whilst the stone is mounted. The approximate gradings provided in the condition reports are estimations, made by the specialists whilst the stones were mounted & are for guidance only. If a stone has been unmounted & assessed in a gemmological laboratory, this will be noted in the cataloguing/condition report.

T ERM S A ND CO ND I T I O N S O F B U S I NE S S CO N DITIO NS M AINLY CO N CER NING BU YER S 1 The buyer The highest bidder shall be the buyer at the ‘hammer price’ and any dispute shall be settled at the auctioneer’s absolute discretion. Every bidder shall be deemed to act as principal unless there is in force a written acknowledgement by Noonans Mayfair Ltd. (“Noonans”) that he acts as agent on behalf of a named principal. Bids will be executed in the order that they are received. 2 Minimum increment The auctioneer shall have the right to refuse any bid which does not conform to Noonans’ published bidding increments which may be found at noonans.co.uk and in the bidding form included with the auction catalogue. 3 The premium The buyer shall pay to Noonans a premium of 24% on the ‘hammer price’ and agrees that Noonans, when acting as agent for the seller, may also receive commission from the seller in accordance with Condition 16. 4 Value Added Tax (VAT) The buyers’ premium is subject to the current rate of Value Added Tax if the lot is delivered to or collected by the purchaser within the UK. Lots marked ‘X’ are subject to importation VAT of 5% on the hammer price unless re-exported outside the UK, as per the conditions below. Buyers who wish to hand carry their lots to export them from the UK will be charged VAT at the prevailing rate and importation VAT (where applicable) and will not be able to claim a VAT refund. Buyers will only be able to secure a VAT free invoice and/or VAT refund if the goods are exported by Noonans or a pre-approved commercial shipper. Where the buyer instructs a pre-approved commercial shipper, proof of correct export out of the UK must be provided to Noonans by the buyer within 30 days of export and no later than 90 days from the date of the sale. Refunds are subject to a £50 administrative fee. 5. Artist’s Resale Rights (Droit de Suite) Lots marked ARR in the catalogue indicate lots that may be subject to this royalty payment. The royalty will be charged to the buyer on the ‘hammer price’ and is in addition to the buyers’ premium. Royalties are charged on a sliding percentage scale as shown below but do not apply to lots where the hammer price is less than 1000 euros. The payment is calculated on the rate of exchange at the European Central Bank on the date of the sale. All royalty charges are paid in full to The Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS).

(a) confirm to Noonans his or her name and address and, if so requested, give proof of identity; and (b) pay to Noonans the ‘total amount due’ in pounds sterling within five working days of the end of the sale (unless credit terms have been agreed with Noonans before the auction). Please note that we will not accept cash payments in excess of £5,000 (five thousand pounds) in settlement for purchases made at any one auction. 7 Noonans may, at its absolute discretion, agree credit terms with the buyer before an auction under which the buyer will be entitled to take possession of lots purchased up to an agreed amount in value in advance of payment by a determined future date of the ‘total amount due’. 8 Any payments by a buyer to Noonans may be applied by Noonans towards any sums owing from that buyer to Noonans on any account whatever, without regard to any directions of the buyer, his or her agent, whether expressed or implied. 9 Collection of purchases The ownership of the lot(s) purchased shall not pass to the buyer until he or she has made payment in full to Noonans of the ‘total amount due’ in pounds sterling. 10 (a) The buyer shall at his or her own expense take away the lot(s) purchased not later than 5 working days after the day of the auction but (unless credit terms have been agreed in accordance with Condition 7) not before payment to Noonans of the ‘total amount due’. (b) The buyer shall be responsible for any removal, storage and insurance charges on any lot not taken away within 5 working days after the day of the auction. (c) The packing and handling of purchased lots by Noonans staff is undertaken solely as a courtesy to clients and, in the case of fragile articles, will be undertaken only at Noonans’ discretion. In no event will Noonans be liable for damage to glass or frames, regardless of the cause. Bulky lots or sharp implements, etc., may not be suitable for in-house shipping. 11 Buyers’ responsibilities for lots purchased The buyer will be responsible for loss or damage to lots purchased from the time of collection or the expiry of 5 working days after the day of the auction, whichever is the sooner. Neither Noonans nor its servants or agents shall thereafter be responsible for any loss or damage of any kind, whether caused by negligence or otherwise, while any lot is in its custody or under its control. Loss and damage warranty cover at the rate of 1.5% will be applied to any lots despatched by Noonans to destinations outside the UK, unless specifically instructed otherwise by the consignee. 12 Remedies for non-payment or failure to collect purchase If any lot is not paid for in full and taken away in accordance with Conditions 6 and 10, or if there is any other breach of either of those Conditions, Noonans as agent of the seller shall, at its absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights it may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights and remedies:

(a) to proceed against the buyer for damages for breach of contract. (b) to rescind the sale of that or any other lots sold to the defaulting buyer at the same or any other auction. (c) to re-sell the lot or cause it to be re-sold by public auction or private sale and the defaulting buyer shall pay to Noonans any resulting deficiency in the ‘total amount due’ (after deduction of any part payment and addition of re-sale costs) and any surplus shall belong to the seller. (d) to remove, store and insure the lot at the expense of the defaulting buyer and, in the case of storage, either at Noonans’ premises or elsewhere. (e) to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 2 percent per month on the ‘total amount due’ to the extent it remains unpaid for more than 5 working days after the day of the auction. (f) to retain that or any other lot sold to the same buyer at the sale or any other auction and release it only after payment of the ‘total amount due’. (g) to reject or ignore any bids made by or on behalf of the defaulting buyer at any future auctions or obtaining a deposit before accepting any bids in future. (h) to apply any proceeds of sale then due or at any time thereafter becoming due to the defaulting buyer towards settlement of the ‘total amount due’ and to exercise a lien on any property of the defaulting buyer which is in Noonans’ possession for any purpose. 13 Liability of Noonans and sellers (a) Goods auctioned are usually of some age. All goods are sold with all faults and imperfections and errors of description. Illustrations in catalogues are for identification only. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to the sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Subject to the obligations accepted by Noonans under this Condition, none of the seller, Noonans, its servants or agents is responsible for errors of descriptions or for the genuineness or authenticity of any lot. No warranty whatever is given by Noonans, its servants or agents, or any seller to any buyer in respect of any lot and any express or implied conditions or warranties are hereby excluded. (b) Any lot which proves to be a ‘deliberate forgery’ may be returned by the buyer to Noonans within 15 days of the date of the auction in the same condition in which it was at the time of the auction, accompanied by a statement of defects, the number of the lot, and the date of the auction at which it was purchased. If Noonans is satisfied that the item is a ‘deliberate forgery’ and that the buyer has and is able to transfer a good and marketable title to the lot free from any third party claims, the sale will be set aside and any amount paid in respect of the lot will be refunded, provided that the buyer shall have no rights under this Condition if: (i) the description in the catalogue at the date of the sale was in accordance with the then generally accepted opinion of scholars and experts or fairly indicated that there was a conflict of such opinion; or (ii) the only method of establishing at the date of


publication of the catalogue that the lot was a ‘deliberate forgery’ was by means of scientific processes not generally accepted for use until after publication of the catalogue or a process which was unreasonably expensive or impractical. (c) A buyer’s claim under this Condition shall be limited to any amount paid in respect of the lot and shall not extend to any loss or damage suffered or expense incurred by him or her. (d) The benefit of the Condition shall not be assignable and shall rest solely and exclusively in the buyer who, for the purpose of this condition, shall be and only be the person to whom the original invoice is made out by Noonans in respect of the lot sold. CO N DITIONS M AINLY CONCERN ING SE L L E R S AND CONSIGN OR S 14 Warranty of title and availability The seller warrants to Noonans and to the buyer that he or she is the true owner of the property or is properly authorised to sell the property by the true owner and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. The seller will indemnify Noonans, its servants and agents and the buyer against any loss or damage suffered by either in consequence of any breach on the part of the seller. 15 Reserves The seller shall be entitled to place, prior to the first day of the auction, a reserve at or below the low estimate on any lot provided that the low estimate is more than £100. Such reserve being the minimum ‘hammer price’ at which that lot may be treated as sold. A reserve once placed by the seller shall not be changed without the consent of Noonans. Noonans may at their option sell at a ‘hammer price’ below the reserve but in any such cases the sale proceeds to which the seller is entitled shall be the same as they would have been had the sale been at the reserve. Where a reserve has been placed, only the auctioneer may bid on behalf of the seller. 16 Authority to deduct commission and expenses The seller authorises Noonans to deduct commission at the ‘stated rate’ and ‘expenses’ from the ‘hammer price’ and acknowledges Noonans’ right to retain the premium payable by the buyer. 17 Rescission of sale If before Noonans remit the ‘sale proceeds’ to the seller, the buyer makes a claim to rescind the sale that is appropriate and Noonans is of the opinion that the claim is justified, Noonans is authorised to rescind the sale and refund to the buyer any amount paid to Noonans in respect of the lot. 18 Payment of sale proceeds Noonans shall remit the ‘sale proceeds’ to the seller 35 days after the auction, but if by that date Noonans has not received the ‘total amount due’ from the buyer then Noonans will remit the sale proceeds within five working days after the date on which the ‘total amount due’ is received from the buyer. If credit terms have been agreed between Noonans and the buyer, Noonans shall remit to the seller the sale proceeds 35 days after the auction unless otherwise agreed by the seller. 19 If the buyer fails to pay to Noonans the ‘total amount due’ within 3 weeks after the auction, Noonans will endeavour to notify the seller and

take the seller’s instructions as to the appropriate course of action and, so far as in Noonans’ opinion is practicable, will assist the seller to recover the ‘total amount due’ from the buyer. If circumstances do not permit Noonans to take instructions from the seller, the seller authorises Noonans at the seller’s expense to agree special terms for payment of the ‘total amount due’, to remove, store and insure the lot sold, to settle claims made by or against the buyer on such terms as Noonans shall in its absolute discretion think fit, to take such steps as are necessary to collect monies due by the buyer to the seller and if necessary to rescind the sale and refund money to the buyer if appropriate. 20 If, notwithstanding that, the buyer fails to pay to Noonans the ‘total amount due’ within three weeks after the auction and Noonans remits the ‘sale proceeds’ to the seller, the ownership of the lot shall pass to Noonans. 21 Charges for withdrawn lots Where a seller cancels instructions for sale, Noonans reserve the right to charge a fee of 15% of Noonans’ then latest middle estimate of the auction price of the property withdrawn, together with Value Added Tax thereon if the seller is resident in the UK, and ‘expenses’ incurred in relation to the property. 22 Rights to photographs and illustrations The seller gives Noonans full and absolute right to photograph and illustrate any lot placed in its hands for sale and to use such photographs and illustrations and any photographs and illustrations provided by the seller at any time at its absolute discretion (whether or not in connection with the auction). 23 Unsold lots Where any lot fails to sell, Noonans shall notify the seller accordingly. The seller shall make arrangements either to re-offer the lot for sale or to collect the lot. 24 Noonans reserve the right to charge commission up to one-half of the ‘stated rates’ calculated on the ‘bought-in price’ and in addition ‘expenses’ in respect of any unsold lots. GENE RA L CO N D I TI O N S AN D DE FIN IT I O N S 25 Noonans sells as agent for the seller (except where it is stated wholly or partly to own any lot as principal) and as such is not responsible for any default by seller or buyer. 26 Any representation or statement by Noonans, in any catalogue as to authorship, attribution, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price is a statement of opinion only. Every person interested should exercise and rely on his or her own judgement as to such matters and neither Noonans nor its servants or agents are responsible for the correctness of such opinions. 27 Whilst the interests of prospective buyers are best served by attendance at the auction, Noonans will, if so instructed, execute bids on their behalf. Neither Noonans nor its servants or agents are responsible for any neglect or default in doing so or for failing to do so. 28 Noonans shall have the right, at its discretion, to refuse admission to its premises or attendance

at its auctions by any person. 29 Noonans has absolute discretion without giving any reason to refuse any bid, to divide any lot, to combine any two or more lots, to withdraw any lot from the auction and in case of dispute to put up any lot for auction again. 30 (a) Any indemnity under these Conditions shall extend to all actions, proceedings costs, expenses, claims and demands whatever incurred or suffered by the person entitled to the benefit of the indemnity. (b) Noonans declares itself to be a trustee for its relevant servants and agents of the benefit of every indemnity under these Conditions to the extent that such indemnity is expressed to be for the benefit of its servants and agents. 31 Any notice by Noonans to a seller, consignor, prospective bidder or buyer may be given by first class mail or airmail and if so given shall be deemed to have been duly received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 32 These Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English law. All transactions to which these Conditions apply and all matters connected therewith shall also be governed by English law. Noonans hereby submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts and all other parties concerned hereby submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts. 33 In these Conditions: (a) ‘catalogue’ includes any advertisement, brochure, estimate, price list or other publication; (b) ‘hammer price’ means the price at which a lot is knocked down by the auctioneer to the buyer; (c) ‘total amount due’ means the ‘hammer price’ in respect of the lot sold together with any premium, Value Added Tax chargeable and additional charges and expenses due from a defaulting buyer in pounds sterling; (d) ‘deliberate forgery’ means an imitation made with the intention of deceiving as to authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source which is not shown to be such in the description in the catalogue and which at the date of the sale had a value materially less than it would have had if it had been in accordance with that description; (e) ‘sale proceeds’ means the net amount due to the seller being the ‘hammer price’ of the lot sold less commission at the ‘stated rates’ and ‘expenses’ and any other amounts due to Noonans by the seller in whatever capacity and howsoever arising; (f) ‘stated rate’ means Noonans’ published rates of commission for the time and any Value Added Tax thereon; (g) ‘expenses’ in relation to the sale of any lot means Noonans charges and expenses for insurance, illustrations, special advertising, certification, remedials, packing and freight of that lot and any Value Added Tax thereon; (h) ‘bought-in price’ means 5 per cent more than the highest bid received below the reserve. 34 Vendors’ commission of sales A commission of 15 per cent is payable by the vendor on the hammer price on lots sold. Insurance is charged at 1.5 per cent of the hammer price. 35 VAT Commission, illustrations, insurance and expenses are subject to VAT if the seller is resident in the UK.
